Stellina's is consistently a great restaurant with food that is always fresh, terrific bread with a yummy spread, an ever changing menu and a place that I like to go to once a month!

Stellina is the perfect date spot! Its in the 'burbs so you dont have to worry about parking and the drinks and food are spectacular. If you're bringing kids with you they have kid friendly food but also "foodie" friendly dishes. They have live jazz on Tuesday nights too!

Went last weekend and - despite the deafening roar (read: pretty loud) we had some of the best appetizers and main courses we've had since we went to Tuscany a few years ago. The hostess was charming and the waitress helped recommend a wine to go with our main course. Overall an unbelievable value - we would have paid a lot more downtown for what we got in the suburbs, and it wouldn't have been nearly as good. Oh - and the desserts! Who makes them? Addictive! We'll be going back.

Pros: Food, service, atmosphere, value.

Cons: Parking can be a zoo, and the place can get VERY noisy (still manages to be romantic)

I have been to Stellina many times and have never been disappointed. From their tomato and goat cheese salad to the BEST shrimp scampi, I have ever had, Stellina is one of my favorite places to eat. Located in Watertown sq, the atmospher is great and so is the service. Great place for a date, a family celebration or just a place you want to grab a bite to eat. I highly recommend Stellina

We love this place. The wine list is extensive enough without being overwhelming. The bar is cozy, and there are sometimes seats available there even if there isn't a table free. (Full menu is available at the bar.)

The menu is seasonal, which has its pros and cons. Sometimes a favorite dish is missing off the menu when you go back, however, the seasonal nature of the menu ensures that everything is always fresh.

My husband and I have never had a meal there that we didn't love. The prices are on the high side, but it's a "splurge" kind of place - not a casual Friday night. We go there on birthdays and anniversaries, and once on New Year's Eve. (They lost our reservation for NYE but luckily there were only two of us and they were able to fit us in anyway.)

The owner is a very friendly woman who is almost always the hostess as well. She is very nice, but doesn't seem to have a knack for remembering faces. We've been there many times and she still greets us as if it's our first time. (I know she sees a lot of people, but often hosts/hostesses are good at face recognition and are able to at least say "welcome back.")

The bread is delicious and is one of our favorite things about going there. It's served with a pesto-lemony spread with pine nuts that is to die for. The selection of entrees isn't extensive, but I've never had trouble finding something that sounded delicious to order. The desserts are grest as well.

Stellina is a nice restaurant for a date (although a little on the pricey side) and I have, and will continue to recommend it to my friends.

Stellina has become the go-to restaurant for my family - birthdays, mother's day, college graduation. We even utilized their new (at the time) back room for my wedding rehearsal dinner. We love Stellina for their consistently attentive service and their delicious, authentic Italian food (my grandparents grew up in Northern Italy and give Stellina their stamp of approval). No visit is complete without an order of the warm tomato salad and a few molten chocolate cakes. The tomato salad is perfectly seasoned, and accompanied by tangy goat cheese from Westfield Farm. The molten chocolate cake is rich and chocolatey, and is best shared. We have yet to taste a dish we haven't liked.

It's all "wanna-be" Italian food!!! Service is terrible. Bread is NOT Italian. Food quality is spotyty at best. Why do people rate it high? Maybe ignorance? I know Italian food..good Italian food...and Stellina does NOT produce "good" Itlain food!

The North End has great restaurants and food, but it can be a tourist trap and a headache to get to for a nice evening. I took my parents and two guests from California to Stellina after failing to get reasonable reservations at several places in Boston. The decor was nice, despite it's location in Watertown Square. The main entrance to the restaurant is in the "back" from the lot. It was a tad awkward because they have a few outdoor tables set up around a makeshift fountain/garden. Our party of five was seated inside, a small, dimly-lit dining room.

Service was a bit spotty. While the bread and pesto butter came out quickly and our order was taken, the waitress did not check in on us. We had to track her down to get our bill, and payment was processed by another staff member, which was odd.

The food however, was excellent. The Stellina Warm Tomato Salad is an interesting alternative to the usual tomato & mozzarella salad. The goat cheese they used was exceptional and really gave the dish more pop. My parents and I ordered the evening's special: medley of seafood served with a spicy, tomato-based cream sauce and fettuccine. The guests from the West Coast split the steak, which was cooked medium-rare and served with lots of veggies.

Overall, I'm pleased with the place. The menu changes seasonally so I'll be checking them out again in the future.

When we're in Watertown we HAVE to go to Stellina. The food is unbelievable and the service is the best. Try the warm tomato salad - to die for! Great menu and terrific wine!

Onion soup was excellent, Ceasar Salad bland and flavorless. Our main entree, a pasta dish was also not very tasty. Unseasoned. Celery in pasta?!? Dessert was terrific. Only place I've seen so far that charges a fee if a couple splits an entree. Slightly overpriced for what it was. Good size portions though. And Service was very good. Worth a try - maybe it was just our meal that night that wasn't very good.

This restaurant shows that it cares about every aspect of its offerings. I just can't figure out why they are still in the same funky Watertown Square location. But easy to forget the neighborhood once you're in. Every detail is well crafted from the chewy artisan breads to the decadent desserts and rich coffee. Very fresh foods, fresh menu ideas.
Patio seating is a must whenever the weather permits.

It's a treat to eat such marvelous fare so close to home. We went for the Italian based menu that includes many surprises: unique meat (ostrich) and the freshest seafood were all prepared with a flair. Service was flawless. Prices are quite reasonable given the quality of the meal. Who knew you could find such a gem in Watertown. Looking forward to meals on the patio this summer...
